Been extremely depressed, more doctors changing what's wrong with me. I can't do this anymore. With the doctors i mean. I am depressed but not suicidal.

Anonymous... Oh, I am so glad that you checked in. I'm sorry to hear of what you're going through. It is so hard when you're diagnosed with issues and then they pull the rug out from under you and say, you don't have that, you have this. It's frustrating and depressing. The weird weather and this time of year don't help either. Please know that we are all here for you. You are part of this wonderful pain family and we want all of our family members to check in so we know what's happening. I am sending you love, {{{Hugs}}} and prayers that things level off for you and that you have a peaceful evening/night and wake tomorrow to less pain and a better day. 💕🙏🏻🌻

Anonymous, I'm glad you checked in with us. I was starting to wonder where you were. It's very frustrating for docs to play guessing games and keep changing things on you. We are here for you. (((Hugs))) 🙂🙏🌼

Thank you both, I went back to my primary care doctor today and he was very unhappy with the opinion of the pain specialist. One positive is I am officially diagnosed with fibromyalgia. The pain specialist tried to say that was the only thing that was wrong. Contrary to the neurologists and my primary care doctors medical findings. So luckily I don't ever have to go back to that pain specialist again. I have to do 6 weeks completely GMO free to see if that helps. My doctor says people with Fibro are very sensitive and GMOs can make your pain worse. I also had a lump removed from my arm 2 weeks ago and it was sent off for a biopsy. I never heard anything so I figured no news is good news. Well now I'm unsure of what I should do. The lab reported that it was a malignant sheath tumor. They sent it off for a second opinion and they said it was benign. My family thinks I need a tie breaker? What did the second lab do differently that made the results come back differently? Anyhow I'm not sure what I should do. Of course I want to just go with the benign tumor opinion. What if though?

I'm inclined to agree with the family, that a third set of eyes/3rd opinion is needed. It will give you confirmation and you won't have to wonder. But it can probably wait until the first of the year. (((Hugs))) and prayers it does then out to be benign. 🙂🙏🌼

Anonymous, what the second lab did was Stage the tumor. They looked for characteristics that would give reasons for metastasises. Your tumor was probably a stage one and will not become malignant or grow in other parts of your body.Just thought I would share what I know. I would encourage you to breath in and out , relax, your doctor can explain all this to you about the lab studies. Please try to heal and enjoy your family during the holidays.Love and Blessings , Terri (retired nurse)
